Abstract: An increase of light absorption by light trapping is a key issue for the design of thin film solar cells from crystalline silicon. According to our numerical work, the deposition of crystalline silicon layers of thickness, W= 4 &micro;m, on textured glass substrates doubles the cell current for facet angles, &alpha; = 75°, and texture periods, p < 16 &micro;m, without the need for anti reflection coatings. We demonstrate the fabrication of such micron-sized light traps by embossing of sol-gel glasses.
